Three syllables

scribed in red

and bolded on a plastic yellow tag

Warning--

A child- cuddled up in fleece by the fire

A woman- masking her golden blonde locks

with creamy black glue

A man- drinking a bottle of forgotton memories

Friends- lighting birthday candles at a vibrant dinner party

The crackling of grease- on a sizzling stovetop

A baby- playing with matches

Ignorant of the fiery potential

And a boy- 

carelessly toying with a young girl's heart

Igniting another flame
